How Where we Live, Will Reshape How we Move
Increasingly, the cars of today are developed for the scenario of commuting and driveway parking—but cities are planning for a very different future. Across the world, we are living in congested, sprawling metropolises where challenges of congestion and pollution are inspiring changes in how we choose to live and therefore how we move.
Megan Neese, IDSA of Nissan Motor Ltd.’s Future Lab finds that in this new era where products are also assumed to be harmonious integrations of software, hardware and service—we imagine a new frontier for the future of mobility and the auto industry as we know it.
